The IRF-2650 Forum 232 Wireless Microphone System from TeachLogic is a sound-field system for classroom presentation. This system consists of an IMA-232 Amplifier/Receiver Base Station, IRT-60 Sapphire Microphone Transmitters with Lithium-ion Batteries, IRH-35 Handheld Infrared Transmitter/Microphone with NiMH Batteries, an ICS-55 Ceiling Sensor for IR connectivity throughout the room, and four CS-4 Ceiling Speakers. It also includes a BRC-55 Drop-In Charger for charging the Sapphire transmitters.
The IRF-2650 features a Digital Feedback Guard (DFG) that eliminates acoustical feedback. The wireless Sapphire microphone has a capsule which allows maximum gain before feedback. It has a 50W Digital Hybrid Class D amplifier. The system allows remote adjustment of inputs via the RS-232 wall panel controller. The unit has two infrared wireless microphones which can be used simultaneously. It provides two auxiliary line inputs for multi-media integration with even distribution of sound for the audio in the classroom. The Forum 232 has a Line level output for lesson capture and another output for Assistive Listening System (ALS).
The Forum 232 is an infrared wireless microphone sound system. It is the nucleus of the classroom sound field system which provides optimum voice reinforcement. The wireless function permits 360° connectivity throughout the classroom regardless of body position or orientation.
The system is comprised of an infrared detecting sensor installed in the ceiling. The sensor collects the IR wireless signal from the microphone/transmitter and sends a composite signal to the mixer/amplifier via the included 50' plenum-rated cable. The receiver transforms the composite signal into an analog audio signal which is fed to the amplifier mixer. Two other audio sources, such as computer, DVD, VCR, or projector can be plugged in to the Forum 232. The volume level of each input will be controlled by the individual volume control of each input. The audio will then be fed to the speakers in the room for even voice reinforcement throughout the room.
On the front panel of the Forum 232, there are two 3.5mm output jacks for interface with an assistive listening system (ALS) and lesson capture (REC). The rechargeable batteries offer 6 to 8 hours of usage per charge. The drop-in charger will recharge the batteries overnight, ready for another day’s use.
TeachLogic Forum 232 2-Channel Infrared Receiver/Amplifier Base Station with Switching Power Supply
The Forum 232 2-Channel Infrared Receiver/Amplifier Base Station with Switching Power Supply from TeachLogic is the nucleus of the Forum 232 Wireless Classroom Microphone System. This receiver is designed for use with the Sapphire or handheld microphone transmitters (all sold separately). These transmitters transmit the vocal signal via infrared light to the dome sensor (sold separately) installed on the ceiling. The signal is then sent via cable to the receiver input of the mixer/amplifier. The signal is detected and then processed through the power amplifier to the speakers.
The unit features RS-232 wall panel control of the line inputs, remote teacher security alert, teacher priority with instant attenuation of the line levels via Sapphire IRT-60 pendant mic (available separately), DFG (Digital Feedback Guard), and switchable anti-hum circuit on the computer input.
TeachLogic Infrared Dome Sensor
TeachLogic's Infrared Dome Sensor needs to be installed on the ceiling at least 3' from the video projector. It comes with a mounting/support bracket and 50' of plenum rated cable with RCA connector on each end. The ideal location for the dome sensor would be in the center of the ceiling. This will provide a clear signal path for the IR transmission from the transmitter to the dome sensor without obstruction. In addition, you will have 360° coverage and will minimize the transmission distance for more reliable performance. It collects the infrared transmission signal via 6 large detecting diodes. The sensor is connected to the mixer/amplifier via a plenum rated cable terminated with RCA connectors. The mixer/amplifier supplies the power to the sensor.
TeachLogic IRH-35 Handheld Microphone with Infrared Transmitter and Rechargeable Batteries
The TeachLogic IRH-35 Handheld Microphone with Infrared Transmitter and Rechargeable Batteries is a handheld mic with a built-in infrared transmitter for use with TeachLogic infrared sound systems. The unit has an ergonomic design and very low handling noise, making it well suited for passing around among students for Q&A sessions and classroom participation. The cardioid condenser mic reproduces clear, intelligible speech, while the built-in windscreen prevents breath pops.
Two AA batteries will power the mic for up to 7 hours. The emitting diodes are located around the top and bottom ends of the handle for 360° transmission, ensuring reliable wireless IR connectivity to the receiver throughout the classroom. The system offers a 60' operating range.

TeachLogic IRT-60 Sapphire Infrared Microphone with Plug-In Charger
The TeachLogic IRT-60 Sapphire is a compact and lightweight infrared microphone that can be worn around your neck or clipped to clothing, making it well suited for teachers, instructors, and lecturers. Its cardioid polar pattern delivers focused vocal clarity with minimal ambience while the built-in breath filter reduces plosives and the integral rubber shock suspension impedes vibrations. The internal lithium-ion battery provides up to eight hours of use and conveniently recharges via the supplied BRC-15 plug-in charger.
The ITR-60 Sapphire also features a 3.5mm stereo aux input to accommodate an external source such as a smartphone, an MP3 player, or a headworn mic. The mic gain and amplifier volume are adjustable, so you can effectively optimize the signal level. The power button doubles as an easy mute on/off function. When the IRT-60 Sapphire is used with a compatible amplifier/receiver, the switchable teacher priority automatically lowers the audio volume of aux/line inputs upon detection of incoming mic signal.
